Is the county-owned Reid-Hillview Airport in East San Jose an expensive indulgence or a crucial civic service? That’s the touchy question the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors plans to tackle Tuesday – for the third time in nearly 20 years. The board’s chairman, Supervisor Pete McHugh, wants the supervisors to investigate closing and redeveloping the 69-year-old airport property, which serves about 600 private pilots. He’d like county staff members to come back later this year with the practical and legal implications of doing so.
